Buford Edward Braly married Mildred B. Shank in Manhattan, Riley County, Kansas on 22 May 1931. They had two daughters, Carol Diane and Elaine Lynne.

Buford was an attorney in Wyandotte County, Kansas, and served as as a county judge. During World War II he served as a Lieutenant in the U. S. Navy.

After the war, Buford practiced law in Kansas City, Kansas. In 1948, he was the Democrat Party's candidate for Justice of the Supreme Court, Position No. 3 for the State of Kansas.

In a well publicized murder case, he was the court-appointed attorney for Lowell Lee Andrews, a University of Kansas student charged with slaying his parents and sister on November 28, 1958. His story was briefly mentioned in the book, "In Cold Blood," by Truman Capote.

Buford and Mildred retired to Panama City, Florida. They are buried beside each other in Evergreen Memorial Cemetery, Panama City, Bay County, Florida.
